So I have two Date fields of type Date which will populate date using field updates by Workflows. Formula used - Today() // Note: I also tried using Now()

I have a third field formula field of Return Type Text IF(Date_1__c>CloseDate, TEXT( (ROUND( MOD ((CloseDate - Date_2__c)*24,24),0) )), TEXT( (ROUND( MOD ((CloseDate - Date_2__c)*24,24),0) ))) // I know I used same logic in the If-else; its just a test.

I needed the output in Hours. Note: I am receiving 0 as the output on the formula field



(floor((CloseDate - Date_2__c)*24))
(((((CloseDate - Date_2__c)*24)-floor((CloseDate - Date_2__c)*24))*60)/100)

1st statement looks at # of hours only (ex: from 24.5 to 24). 2nd takes the amount, removes the hours (ex: 24.5 to .5), and convert the decimals to minutes (ex: .5 to 30).

  • So I used just the first statement since I only needed hours and on testing I got 408.00 as the output. Where Closed Date was 7/30/2015 and Date 2 was 7/13/2015
